>>CYO Fall Sports Fully Back
The fall Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) sports season began recently with soccer, high school basketball, and cross-country.
“After the early termination of the 2019-2020 year when COVID-19 first hit and two years of modified play in 2020-2021 and 2021-2022, we are all excited for what should be a full return to regular play during our normal calendar dates,” said CYO Director Keith Goldberg. “It’s great to see everyone back.”
